THE R ISE OF UEt CrESTNUT
It is a matter ofl reproach to our so
cial scientists thag the habits and cus
toms of the joke have received so little
attention. It is at error of the vulgar
to suppose that a J ke is a literary me
teor that :inhes a --oss the intellectual
skv for a moment ind then disappears
forever. Even trained observers have
been deceived inti expressing much
the same opinion; and a celebrated
scientist, whose services to mankind
justify us in conceiing his name iV
connection with the charge, was heard
to declare that a joie was "an instance
of intellectual abeitation unworthy of
serio, attention." i Nothing could be
further from the fiets. Leaving aside
any discussion of tik first cause of the
joke, which would ivolve us in the
obscurities of metauysical discussion,
we may state boldi that the joke has
well-difined habits nd peculiarities,
and a study of its hotory and develop
ment is weil worthithe attention of
the foremost minds i science.
If is evident to an: jobserver that the
joke may be accuirsely divided into
racas ad-nationat. i No one who
had paid the slighte- attention to the
subject could possib mistake a Ger
man joke for a F ach joke, or a
Frenen joke for a Br h joke. In fact,
they are as plainly arked off from
each other as any .t breeds of dogs.
and each undoubted has its different
habits. An adequa iscussion of the
subject can not eve outlined in this
column. Neverthel as a small con
. tribution to an imp ant -subject, we
offer the following - int of a single
member of the nr ad interesting
family known as tiie Crican joke:
It is eight months. more since the
chestnut'joke first s the light. Its
birth is involved in o urity, in spite
of earnest efforts to . e its ancestry.
in the early days of, s existence it
gave no sign oI coMi: greatness. We
know the story of tiv hool at Brien
ue, where Bourieine k the prizes
over N.poleon; Bou- ne is now re
membered not as "prize boy,"
but as Nepolcon's se ~ V. In a like
manner tie tin-pan j or the nigger
baby joke of even da ith the chest
nut set med surer of i At the time
the-chestnut appeare e paint-the
town-red joke was at height of its
lame. Its monthly a ance in Jan
nary was twenty-six usand seven
huudred and forty-six,' hen is sur
passed only by its unp edented No
vember record of thirty lit thousand
nine hnndred. due to th ocal disturb
ing cause of a Democra victory that
month at the polls. r the same
month the chestnut app d in public
but a beggarly one hund and eleven
times. Yrevious to that to it was so
insigninant as not to worthy cf
record. Starting from -t point, we
see the gradual rise of t hesnert and
the corresponding declin f paint-the
town-red.; In February e chestnut
appeared twelve hundr. and forty
four times. and the paint e-town-red
appeared twenty-five sand nine
hundred and fourteen tim This does
not necessariiy indieate a falling off
in the popularity of the I r, forL the
effect of hard times was t severely
feltthat month, the tot output of
jokes being six per cent u er that of
January; but the increase the chest
nut joke under such unf rable cir
cumstances is truly sig ant. The
following month paint- -town-red
nearly ield its own, appe twenty
,ive .thousand seven hundre ad nine
tegn times, but the chestn increased
to thirty-two hundred. Th ollowing
monthi it increased by elev hundred,
while the' paint-the-town-r declined
by nearly the same numi But in
the month of May the ches' leaped
at one astonishing bound t fourteen
thousand seven hundred an ghty ap
pearances, its only one riv coming
down something less than e same
figure.
It is scarcely necessary to further
into details. The August as give
a total of more than twenty- thous
and appearances for theches it,while
its rival is all but as extin as Mr.
Crawford's "dado." The rts for
the first half of the present uth in
dicate that the total will fa ittle if
any below that of August, though
the return-of-the-summer-b- .'cr has
acted. as. a disturbing ele t. We
may assume however, fron: e fore
going figures that the ch ut has
reached its full de'velopmea and is
doomed to a speedy decline. I is dan
gerous to generalize from bt two or
three instances, but from try brious
similarity of the careers of tl uccess
ful American joke, it is almo ''ertain
that their existence is dete d by
fixed an4d immutable laws. have
not the -figures at had to v this
statement, but we pronounc in all
confidence.p
We may suppose, therefo at tae
chestnut -must follow the pa- Ircady
troduden by paint-the-town-re ad its
predecessL and, after seein ' e rise
of some sful rival that even
now in the obscure throng, w' come
extinct in about eight months. s rise
has taken an equal length of in
spite of a few well-known e tions
where a joke has been able to rvive
in a toothless, mumbling con a for
two or three years. we ma afely
state that the average life of suc
cessful American joke is sixtee , at
the most, eighteen months. sub

THIRD QUESTION.

"Cosmogony."
"What?"
-'Well, astronomy."
"0! I see now, gentlemen; you must

I only want to be a sugar inspector."
"That will do, sir. We are quite
aware of that. Now pay attention and
answer our questions.
EIFTH QUESTION.
"Explain the rotation of the miolecu

"No. I thank you, I had rather not.

they know quite well that good and bad
clothing are alike made to sell: and who
was ever known to advertise poor clothing?
They know how nearly all clothiers keep
the finest and sell-on paper-at less than
it cost to make them. Honest prices, well
made and nicely fitting clothes, together
with a good name (justly deserved), are
bound to tell.
The above being a fact, 1 state it merely
to enforce the point that I have ready for
inspection the largest and best assorted
stock of Fall and Winter Clothing for men,
vouths and boys, that can be found in the
State. They are peerless in variety and
honestly good all the way through; even
the underlinings are shrun'k and the trim
mings used are meant to wear, not merely
to help sell the goods. a-, every, garment is
warranted as represented. 'I here are un
assailable ramparts behind which I invite
you to deal. I am not here for a season
ly: I am lere to stay. My stock this sea
son is the largest I have ever carried, and
it embraces every style and fashionable
garment that is made. I am willing to
compare them with the merchant tailor
work, and it is with real pleasure to otate
that the business of this EMPORIUM OF
FASHION is steadily on the increase. My
,large and constantly increasing patronage
testifies more forcibly than words than t~e
values offered by me are not equalled by
any house in the'State.
To prove the truth of this I ask buyers
to make their own comparisons, as I enjoy
then a reputation above that and beyond
that of all clothiers in this vicinity at least
producing a superior class of regular
Tailor-made Clothing and Genth' Furnish
ing Goods, Hats and Fine Shoes. This is
the headquarters for the correct styles in
men's and boys' attire. All orders sent to
my care will be promptly attended to.
